From our Makers

  • I've been making jewelry since 1987, one piece at a time, by hand. I have searched for ways to interact with my clients around the world in an easy, safe and interactive way - and CustomMade has delivered. CustomMade allows me to connect with each customer one at a time, and deliver unique and interesting products for people who want something special.

  • CustomMade helps me meet new people and craft things that make them happy. This has helped me turn my part-time passion into a full-time career.
